Laura Bush protest

This afternoon from about 11:30 to 12:30 six members of Radical Reference and two sympathizers rallied at the NY Historical Society where Laura Bush was lunching. Laura was entering via the loading dock, so we focused our attention at the Society's back entrance at 76th and Central Park West. Secret Service and NYPD blocked access to the street--so no one could get a shot at the Resident's wife, but we managed to find a spot where we could be heard, if not seen. We shouted "Money for books and education, not for war and occupation!" and "Stand up, fight back against the USA PATRIOT Act!" there for about half an hour. Plenty of passersby and tourist buses witnessed our protest and many were sympathetic. Our signs criticized the PATRIOT Act and also identified us as librarians against Bush. Lia also had her kick ass 3D Books Not Bombs sign.
